Program in Neurodevelopment and Regeneration

Our scientific goals are to:

  • Allow a direct cellular and functional study of the dynamics of human neural development
  • Correlate cellular and functional events in neural development with underlying changes in genomic sequence, epigenomic imprinting and regulation of gene expression
  • Develop cellular models of biological mechanisms underpinning neuropsychiatric disorders of genetic and non-genetic origins
